Riverdale, New Jersey (WiredPRNews.com) — In addition to improving the lives of patients and their families on a daily basis, a hospital has one other paramount concern, and that is to improve the health of facility and conserve resources – namely, energy.
Hospitals, which account for four percent of all energy consumed in the United States, can achieve widespread energy savings — while maintaining and often improving their quality of care — simply by implementing systems designed with sustainability in mind.
According to a new study presented at the CleanMed conference in Baltimore this May showed that hospitals could reduce utilities by up to 60 percent by reevaluating their energy use. Those changes translate into approximately $730,000 in yearly savings for the average-size hospital.
Energy efficiency can be achieved by changing systems both large and small — from the window and lighting systems to the air filters hospitals they use. In fact, a properly executed air filtration system has been shown to reduce harmful airborne particles, keeping air quality high and lowering the chances of dangerous infections.
High quality air filters keep patients and staff safe by removing harmful airborne particles — reducing the odds of infection and. But the best air filters — like those developed by Camfil Farr – clean the air while decreasing energy use, carbon emissions, and total cost of ownership.
Camfil Farr’s clean air solutions build sustainability right into each and every filter design. Using fine fiber media, the air filters provides high-efficiency, and high air quality, throughout their service life, in contrast to other products that decline markedly over time. That means they last longer and need to be changed out far less frequently, saving costs and reducing waste that ultimately ends up in the landfill.
The revolutionary design reduces HVAC energy costs by 25 to 50 percent, meaning less expense for the hospital and less emissions into the atmosphere. For hospitals, fighting airborne particles no longer means fighting battles with their budget.
